Short patterns applied to proteins are usually not statistically significant: Therefore we can't provide E-values as with BLAST searches. This means that most matches shown are more likely to be false positives than true matches. We hope that ELM server results will prove useful as guides to experimentation but they should not be treated as factual findings.
